633.DESIGN CHOICE OF HIGH-PERFORMANCE MIXER FOR AJVAR/JAM USING THE TOPSIS MODEL
Keywords:mixer, Multi-Criteria Analysis method, TOPSIS Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution)
AbstractPeople construct facilitating devices constantly, in order to keep pace with fast lifestyle, ones that will not change the way of preparing food, but contrarily will reduce the time required. Guided by the idea of simplifying the process of preparing homemade “ajvar”/jam, the aim of this paper is to give direction for a conceivable mixer design for “ajvar”/jam with reinforced performances from the mixers already available on the market. By analyzing and evaluating several available models, particles of the mixers will be compared, and thus possible changes will be made accordingly. The Multi-Criteria Analysis method (MCA) will be used to select the best solution.
